FLORENCE, Colo. (AP) - A small Colorado town broke its sales tax revenue records thanks to the filming of a movie starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports (https://bit.ly/2hQhEES ) that film crews transformed Florence into the fictitious town of Holt for the Netflix movie “Our Souls at Night.” The movie is an adaptation of a novel by Kent Haruf.

The September and October filming helped Florence rake in sales tax revenue. City Administrator Mike Patterson says the town logged $47,803 in sales tax in October, 6 percent more than was taken in last October.

Patterson says October is usually a bad month, but this year both September and October broke tax collection records and put Florence on track for an 8 percent sales tax collection increase over 2015.
